I remember reading in the calibration thread for PZ80/PZ85 that WB method had no effect on PQ but much more likely how many inputs, pic modes, hd and sd, etc. the settings were applied to.
I should re-phrase "pic washed out".
WB METHOD 03 with CM ON gives a good pic, but the colours are over-saturated / more inaccurate than WB METHOD 00 & CM OFF
There is a decoder error in the GREEN CHANNEL that improves with CM ON, but is still present. Look through your GREEN Filter if you have one. CM OFF very obvious that the COLOR BARS with GREEN do not match reference level, nor do they match each other. There will be 4 colors of green through your GREEN filter.
Turn on CM and they get closer but still don't match the reference level or each other. The difference is much less obvious though.
The BLUE CHANNEL is also affect by turning CM ON, though there is no decoder error so just saturation level is altered.
Turn CM OFF and increase the colour to compensate for the change and the red becomes oversaturated.
WB Method 00 there is still a decoder error but look at the GREEN channel with your filter.
The CYAN COLOR BAR will match the REFERENCE LEVEL and the other YELLOW & GREEN will match each other.
I think this is the best you can get with the Decoder error in the green channel.
Not perfect but much closer than WB 03
